Charming 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath home with Lake Superior and Moose Mountain views!
About Jo Ebbert
We are from the Twin Cities, I grew up in Iowa and Bob grew up in North St. Paul. We started coming to the north shore together over 30 years ago and it stole our hearts. We got engaged and then married on Moose Mountain, the mountain you can see from the master bedroom window, yes, we rode the gondolas in a wedding and gown and a tux. Our reception was at Bluefin Bay so this area holds a lot of wonderful memories for us. We eventually got tired of the busyness of resorts and decided to buy a place we could call our home where it was private and quiet but still close to all the fun things to do in the area. We love the changes that have come to the area since then, the Gitchi Gami bike trail at the bottom of hill, the North Shore Winery next door, the major improvements at Lutsen Mountains a mile up the hill and Superior National Golf course across the road, it's a fabulous location. We are so happy to share our home with fellow north shore lovers, we hope to host your stay in our home away from home and make some wonderful memories of your own.
Jo Ebbert purchased this Cabin in 2002
Why Jo Ebbert chose Lutsen
We come to the north shore as often as we can. After years of staying at a nearby resort, sometimes several times a year, we finally decided owning a home 'up north' made sense for us so we bought our vacation home in Lutsen. Of all the areas along the north shore, Lutsen has the most activities nearby making it a great place to go for an active vacation. We love to hike, snowshoe, golf and of course, watch the 'big lake'. Other nearby activities our guests enjoy include snowmobiling, you can leave right from our place to get on the trails, cross country skiing, the nearest trail is just up the hill, mountain biking, riding the Alpine Slide, downhill skiing and snowboarding a mile away at Lutsen Mountains, biking the Gitchi Gami trail at the bottom of Ski Hill Road even whitewater rafting the nearby Poplar River. If you're more the entertain me type, the North Shore Winery is next door, sample wine and enjoy live music or come when Papa Charlie's is hopping with great music. There are art and gift galleries and boat rides in Grand Marais 20 minutes away, a favorite day trip for lunch and shopping. You'll run out of time before you run out of things to do but that's okay, you'll want to return, it's beautiful here in every season and always FUN!
What makes this Cabin unique
Our home is one of only 12 homes that share 20 acres, it's not part of a resort so it's quiet and private but still really close to everything we love to do in Lutsen. We appreciate being out on our 3 season porch or deck and seeing trees and the lake, not other buildings. What made us fall in love with it is the decor. The home was built in 2001 and decorated right after September 11th so the builder's professional decorators chose a red and white and blue color scheme, it's very colorful and so unique. When we say it's cute, it really is, people love staying here.

Perfect Weekend Getaway
My wife and I spent the weekend here in May. The home is beautiful, well-stocked, clean, and comfortable. The location is fantastic! We will definitely be back to visit here again.
Very nice home
Nice layout and clean. Very responsive owner. I would stay at this property again without question.
The accommodations were just as described. The house is clean, well maintained and stocked. A short drive to the ski area and right next to the winery. Check in was easy and the owners are very responsive!
I am so happy to hear you enjoyed our home and found it to be a great place to stay Karen. Every time we go, I say out loud "I love this house, it's just so cute"! Of course, the location is why we bought it, we love Lake Superior and we got married on Moose Mountain and we can see both from here. There's so much to see and do in the area and when the North Shore Winery opened, I knew our guests would enjoy being close enough to walk there. The area just keeps getting better, come again in another season, your kids would love the Alpine Slide!
Perfect cabin for ski-weekend
Comfortable Cabin with a view of Lake Superior, and less than 5 minutes from the ski area. The owner was responsive, and there were no surprises. Highly recommend!
It's great to hear it was perfect for your ski-weekend, it is a quick trip to the slopes.
We're so happy you were comfortable and we thank you for the high recommendation. We hope you'll come again.
Great cabin, just what youre looking for.
Six of my friends and I stayed here for a ski weekend, everything was perfect. Beautiful property 1 minute from the resort. Cabin is just as good as the pictures suggest, and communication with the owner was always prompt. Couldnt have asked for better, thanks Jo!
Thank you Mike! It really is a convenient location without the busyness of the big resorts. Now that you've found what you were looking for, come on back, we'd be happy to have you as our guests again.
The Gitchi-Gami State Trail is just down Ski Hill Road from our home. You can bike or walk on a dedicated along Lake Superior, passing over the dramatic Temperance River Gorge and on to the Cross River in Schroeder, a fabulously scenic ride.
More big news, the Caribou Express high speed chair lift will be installed for the 2013/14 ski season!
North Shore Winery and micro brewery is within walking distance from our home. You can walk over for wine tasting and bring you favorite bottle back to enjoy in front of the fire all without getting in your car.
